Honor 80 Pro and Honor 80 launch with 160MP cameras and 66W charging. Honor staged a massive two-day launch event in China, the first day of which saw the introduction of the MagicOS 7.0 user interface. Today, however, the company unveiled its newest crop of hardware, including three new smartphones.
The Honor 80 Pro and Honor 80 include curved OLED screens, Qualcomm processors, and primary cameras with 160 megapixels. The Honor 80 SE has the lowest price tag and is the only one of the three to include a 64MP primary camera with a brightness of 900 nits. The Honor Magic Vs. is the most impressive new foldable, but the company recently released the Honor 80 series, which includes three new handsets.

Honor 80 Pro steals the show with its stunning curved OLED display, which is 6.78 inches in size and has a resolution of 2700 x 1224 with a refresh rate of 120 hertz. Under the ear speaker, the 10-bit display has a pill-shaped notch in the middle to accommodate the 50-megapixel front-facing camera and the secondary 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Honor 80’s curved OLED screen is 6.67 inches and maintains the exact 2400 x 1080 pixel resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate as the Honor View 20. The hole in the display serves as a home for a single 32-megapixel camera, presumably for usage by the user.
Although the Honor 80 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, it is a significantly underclocked version, with the primary Cortex-X2 core operating at 3.0Ghz (instead of 3.2GHz) and the three Cortex-A710 Gold cores limited at 2.5GHz (instead of 2.75Ghz).
Honor 80 Pro and Honor 80
The Snapdragon 782G chipset, unveiled only days before, is included in the Honor 80. It is the successor of the SD 778G+ SoC. Now let’s talk cameras; the Honor 80 Pro and Honor 80 have identical 160MP primary shooters. It’s an image sensor with a 1/1.56-inch size, f/1.8 aperture, 16-in-1 pixel binning, and 2.24-micrometer pixels.
Honor also provides a new and updated Image Engine with many enhancements, such as better scene optimizations, skin texture identification, and enhanced AI RAW algorithms. A new AI Vlog mode is available to give makers access to more powerful editing tools. In addition to its primary camera, the Honor 80 Pro has a 50MP ultrawide module and a 2MP depth sensor.
The Honor 80’s rear camera setup consists of an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth sensor, which are inferior to those found on the Honor 10. Both handsets run on MagicOS 7, based on Android 12, and include 4,800 mAh batteries with 66W wired fast charging. The Honor 80 Pro and Honor 80 come in various colors, including black, green, blue, and pink.
Honor 80 Pro is available in 8/256GB and 12/512GB storage configurations, with the former costing CNY 3,499 ($490) and the latter fetching CNY 4,099 ($573). The base Honor 80 model, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, costs CNY 2,699 ($377). The top-tier model, with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, costs CNY 3,299 ($460).
Honor 80 SE
The Honor 80 SE has a curved 6.67-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate for a starting price of CNY 2,399 ($335). The 10-bit display has a 32-megapixel front-facing camera and a punch-hole cutout for pulse-width modulation dimming.
On the rear, you’ll find a 64-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The Honor 80SE has a 4,600mAh battery, a MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor, and supports 66W wired fast charging. The Honor 80 SE is offered in various hues, including black, crystal, blue, and pink. Open sales are set to begin in China on December 9, with preorders beginning today.
